On May 5, less than a year after the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs established the Research Center for Xi Jinping’s Diplomatic Thoughts in July of last year, the National Development and Reform Commission of China (NDRC), a macroeconomic management agency under the State Council, established the Research Center for Xi Jinping’s Economic Thoughts.
The research center was established with the approval of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party. The state media reported that “Xi Jinping’s Economic Thoughts” is an important component of “Xi Jinping’s Thoughts on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era” and is “a fundamental guideline for economic work in the new era.”
In July of 2020, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs officially established the Research Center for Xi Jinping’s Diplomatic Thoughts. Foreign Minister Wang Yi praised Xi Jinping for his “great foresight and vision,” for “a series of new ideas and initiatives,” and for the formation of “Xi Jinping’s Diplomatic Thoughts.”
